What is agentless log collection?

Agentless log collection refers to gathering log data from various sources without installing dedicated software agents on the systems generating the logs. Instead, it leverages protocols such as SNMP traps, WECS, WMI, and syslog to retrieve log data remotely. It is easier to explain what agentless log collection is by also providing some context about agent-based log collection. The truth is that these two options for collecting logs walk hand in hand, meaning that they can and will likely coexist on your network.
